The battery power plant in Leighton Buzzard was build 2015 as part of the Low Carbon initiative in UK by S&C Electric in cooperation with UK Power Networks as customer and owner of the plant.

The SCADA-Automation team was delivering the SCADA system for operation and controlling of several operation-modes here, built with zenon Energy Edition Version 7.11 as basis.

A modern design in Full-HD resolution with an anthracite background is an eyecatcher and ensures a dazzle-free overview.
Especially when using the SLD view, conducting connections are capable for differentiation easily.
The start screen is giving an overview of the plant components and informs about operational and alarm conditions very clear.

The SCADA system is concentrating incoming alarms to a few alarm classes and forwards to the super ordinated SCADA of the grid operator.
More operational values are forwarded to the operator-wide archive system.
Graphical diagrams are supplementing scores of detail views of the plant, including functions for manual operation of the plant.

By using zenon web server Pro the fully functional HMI is available within the corporate network for allowed client computers.
